Block Cookies Tool

The Block Cookies tool blocks the sending and receiving of cookies. It can be used to test websites as if you have cookies disabled in your browser. Note that web spiders (such as Google) often don't support Cookies so the tool can also be used to simulate a spider's view of a website.

Selected Locations

The tool can be enabled for every request or only for selected locations. When used for selected locations you limit the tool's effects to specified hosts and or paths using simple but powerful pattern matches.

How it works

The Cookie header is removed from requests, preventing cookie values being sent from the client application (eg. web browser) to the remote server. The Set-Cookie header is removed from responses, preventing requests to set cookies being received by the client application from the remote server.
